BASEMENT / RETAINING WALL FAILURE

BASEMENT / RETAINING WALL FAILURE

Leaning retaining walls and inward bulges in basement walls are very common problems on older hillside homes. These basement walls are not filled with concrete and are backfilled with total soil which self-compacts over years and pushes on the walls. This is aggravated by water that adds pressure to the soil or expands the soil. The type of repair depends on the severity of the bulge in the wall. There are four different repairs we recommend depending on the amount of inward bulge. For minor bulges, only filling the wall with concrete is normally recommended. In the worst case, replacement of the wall is recommended.

Normally, replacement of leaning retaining walls is recommended although we have stabilized some, but they cannot be straightened.








THE FINAL STEP - CLEANUP

We have always taken pride on leaving a yard as good as or better than it was when we started. This probably accounts for the most compliments we get. On completion, the area is graded, topsoil added if required, shrubs replanted if removed and new mulch placed in the beds around the home if disturbed. Lawn areas are seeded and strawed. All concrete surfaces are pressure washed.
